A man wanted in connection with a counterfeiting case that originated at the Oregon State Fair in September was arrested Wednesday afternoon in southeast Portland by members of the U.S. Marshals Oregon Fugitive Task Force.
 
RAYMOND TROY CHADLEY, age 32, was arrested October 14, 2009 at about 4:00 p.m. hiding in a basement of a residence in the 4400 block of SE 100th Avenue. CHADLEY was wanted on a U.S. Marshals Service warrant for Probation Violation and a Clackamas County warrant for Probation Violation.

 
CHADLEY is allegedly connected to an investigation that started September 1, 2009 when OSP troopers investigated reports of counterfeit bills being passed at the Oregon State Fair. Two suspects were found inside the fairgrounds attempting to pass, and in possession of, counterfeit United States currency. The investigation led troopers and detectives to the Travel Lodge in Troutdale where a search warrant was executed and a counterfeit processing plant was found inside one of the rooms. Numerous cut and uncut counterfeit $20 bills were seized along with computers, a printer and additional equipment and products used to make counterfeit currency.
 
CHADLEY, who was recently the focus of Fox 12's Most Wanted, was lodged in the Multnomah County Jail.
 
The U.S. Marshals Oregon Fugitive Task Force is comprised of investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, Washington County Sheriff's Office, Portland Police Bureau, Oregon State Police, Multnomah County Probation & Parole, Clackamas County Probation & Parole, and the Oregon National Guard.
 
The counterfeit investigation is being continued by the United States Secret Service with the assistance of Oregon State Police.
